Clinohumite is a rare mineral and an especially rare gemstone. It is a member of the humite group of minerals, which includes humite, clinohumite, chondrodite, and norbergite.
The humite minerals are named for Sir Abraham Hume (1749-1838), an English mineralogist and famous art collector. Clinohumite was first discovered in 1876 in limestone blocks from the volcano Mount Vesuvius near Naples, Italy. Only three sources of gem-quality material clinohumite are known: the Pamir Mountains of Tajikistan, the Taymyr region of northern Siberia and the Mahenge plateau of Tanzania.
Gem Select is one of the most honest and informative online gem market places. I always know exactly what I am buying whether it is for my own personal work or for a piece for a client. Always a pleasure to deal with.
I received my first stone last week. Beautiful, but somewhat smaller than I wanted, so purchased a second one today. Not to worry, I will incorporate my first into something I am certain. Great service. Great product.
First time visiting this site. I found it very well-organized which made it easy to find what I was looking for. I also like that the gem pictured was the actual gem you were buying and not a stock photo.
